before you switch to your natural deodorant

Armpit detoxification can help the body rid itself of toxins that have built up on the skin. It may also help to reduce the capacity of sweat glands and the amount of odor they produce. Moreover, some research indicates armpit detox can boost the immune system and decrease cancer risk. Conventional deodorants and antiperspirants are absorbed through the skin, and after many years of using these products, a lot of chemical residues have built up on a person's skin.
This is where an armpit detox can help. When someone stops using chemical deodorants and antiperspirants, toxins start to leave the body, resulting in an armpit detox.

How to do an armpit detox
Apple cider vinegar is one of the ingredients for an armpit detox.Armpit detox is relatively straightforward and involves 3 ingredients, some of which people may already have in their homes.
A simple armpit detox includes the following, according to the Healthy and Natural World website:
1 tablespoon Bentonite clay
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (unfiltered works best)
1-2 tablespoons water
Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl with a non-metal utensil. The thickness should be similar to that of yogurt.
Spread the mixture in an even layer under each armpit. Leave the mixture on for a few minutes for the first few times, then slowly increase the time to no longer than 20 minutes.
Wash the mixture off the armpits with warm water.
If the armpits turn red, do not worry, as this is quite normal and harmless. However, if anyone experiences any other reactions to the clay, wash the mixture off immediately.
Repeat the detoxification daily until there is no odor in the armpits or until natural deodorants no longer irritate the skin.
